    Then reinstall lirc from intrepid-backports.

    -g
    A bit worrying... when I select to remove lirc within Synaptic it claims it will also remove the following:
    - lirc-x
    - mythbuntu-common
    - mythbuntu-control-centre
    - mythbuntu-desktop
    - mythbuntu-lirc-generator

    The first and last don't worry me too much, but losing the others seems a bit drastic. I'd be worried about what setup I would lose if I ditch those and have to reinstall them - or am I just being paranoid?

    I'd already deleted the 8.04 stuff from /usr/local/src and only have the 8.10 stuff in there now...

    Need help...

    fatmonk,

    I did do that on my slave machine and all settings remained but I did not try it on my master. I do not use any plug-ins other than mythweb on the master and I only use the xfce4 desktop so our results may vary.

    I removed lirc and then reinstalled the myth* programs it uninstalled and if memory serves one of those myth programs will automatically attach lirc to itself in the install so you will endup getting the same version back. So myabe if you do that and then upgrade to 0.8.4a via the intrepid backport you will be ok. Have you installed 0.8.4a already?

    I am using the ir and vfd in the front of the case and then my mce remote to transmit and the dongle is now hidden away behind the computer on the shelf.

    rgds,

    Dave

    If you follow the above instructions, when you shutdown your machine, you'll see the LCD turn off, and then turn on again when the system finally shuts down. Weird. (The initial turning off of the LCD is an option in LCDd.conf - don't know why it comes back on).

    I believe that this should work, as apparently it performs correctly in a Windows evironment in the same Antec case (This is at least second hand info, though).

    Let me know if anyone knows how to fix that one last annoyance!
    gazer22,

    I was reading some bug reports on the weekend and one thing I found is a that a couple guys have tried Backlight = 0/1 to turn on or off the backlight and they say it works I have not tried it on mine yet.

    Update - on further investigation under the [imonlcd] driver section at the very bottom of the LCDd.conf there is a commmented out line for backlight = 0 or 1 leave that line there and then add Backlight=0 under the contrast line BUT this shuts off the Backlight completely - NO Good. Also in the driver section there is an exit out line which shows set a 2 currently which is what kills the backlight on shutdown which it does but then comes back on when LCDproc closes down as we notice now. So is this an Antec issue or something in imonlcd.c driver that needs to be configured as another patch to the file in lcdproc.

    Thanks for the responce,

    I'm setting it up with an mce remote, I use a logitech 720, I have already programed the remote and it was working in vista.

    Are you running intrepid rodercot?

    what steps did you follow? is there one place all the steps are listed for me to follow?

    thanks

    Hackit,

    Yes, I run Mythbuntu 8.10 and XBMC. So you can follow the beginning of this post to the letter for the LCD configuration and down to step 10. Then you can jump over to my post with this link and finish setting up the MCE remote. if you have a different remote config then you will need to edit the lircd files that I supply in my post and add your own, if it is setup as an MCE remote then you should be fine with my lircd file. My lircd file alsa has the configuration for all the dish/Express Vu remote codes in so it will work with the channel change script I supplied in the post as well. If you are using a different satellite provider or cable service you will need to modify the file as per your requirements.

    That's a little odd, and we need a little more info to help out.

    After re-booting, you should either see:
    Code:
    ## LCDproc Server ##
    Cli: 0  Scr: 0
    or one of the myth screens (probably a nice looking clock).

    If you have nothing on the display, check your connections in the box.

    If you have an ugly clock like this one, then you need to check that the LCD driver is running.

    What are the results if you run the following command?
    Code:
    ps -e | grep -i lcd

    Thanks for the reply,

    Code:
    ps -e | grep -i lcd
     5186 ?        00:00:00 LCDd
     6602 ?        00:00:00 mythlcdserver
